The San Antonio Strauss Festival continues this week with something quite special — violinist Daniel Hope. His back story is nothing if not fascinating.
“My whole family has, in a sense, been touched by exile. My father, who was a writer, is very anti-apartheid, and we were forced to leave the country when I was a baby.”
That country was South Africa, and the family took root in London, where Hope began playing the violin as a young boy. But his interests didn’t stop with music.
